In an interview with NBC, Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville called the hit “brutal” and “hard to believe.” Torres is no stranger to dangerous hits – he was nearly suspended for a hit on Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook last postseason and was suspended four games for a hit on Edmonton Oilers’ forward Jordan Eberle last April.
